I want you to vote regardless of your party or choice. Vote in honor of those who gave their lives while young, and lie in Gettysburg and France and on Pacific Islands. Honor their sacrifice; honor your role — your place in our democracy. Please, vote.
Know this: Whichever candidate wins, he will need us to get the job done.
Whether it’s President Barack Obama or former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, just vote for one of them. But remember, we have other candidates on the ballot and some important ballot initiatives as well.
The stakes are high in this election. It is so close that many professional pollsters or political veterans are changing their forecasts daily. It can literally come down to your personal vote.
Vote. Vote today.
